I came out here, I took time off from work, to figure out what I wanted to do with myself. Except that I don’t know how to start. I don’t know where to look, what to think… I want to magically snap my fingers and know whatever it is that I need to know, right now. It doesn’t work that way often, though.

I just don’t know where to start.

    maybe you should just go for a long walk… get some fresh air and just chill out somewhere…

    First rule of thumb: don’t try. Just get lots of rest and relax and read and in the process, your mind will just innocently sneak up on the problem from behind. But first, just relax and enjoy the break. Completely decompress.

    Maybe even cut off LJ and ‘net for a while to completely separate yourself from connections to what you are getting away from. This is why my trips to maine are always such incredible recharging times. No computer, no computers, no TV. Just me and the wind and the waves and the mountains.

      And do what when I sit alone at my mother’s house? There’s only so much hot tub I can manage at any given time. And I don’t have a car… I don’t know my way around here at all. And it’s cold and rainy and I don’t want to go out in that. I don’t watch TV anyhow. I can’t get out of the city, though.

        hmm. That complicates things. Okay, computer it is then.
